OK, here's a post for those of you who are interested in some of the medical specifics: Craig and I met today with the oncologist (who is simply wonderful, by the way), and we got the pathology back on the cancer: Estrogen Positive (ER+), Progesterone Positive (PR+) and Human Epithelial Receptor 2 Neu Positive (HER 2 neu +). This is basically a triple positive, which in the breast cancer world is a lot better than a triple negative. From what I understand, this is a highly targetable cancer with chemotherapy, of which I will be getting a healthy dose. If any doctor or nurse friends or family reading this wish to provide more insights or thoughts on this, feel free to comment and elucidate. I am viewing this as a slice of good news in a broader "series of unfortunate events." Tomorrow, PET-CT scan. Stay tuned!
